RE: Time Trial & Registration script & User Login

1. Capture the SystemDate and time into a TimeStamp field.
Parse the date out and base the control script on this date, after you flag the first opening date/time of the application.

2. Capture f.i. the first and last name of the user. Make a hash calculation field, result number, based on this field, on a layout not accessible for the user.
Ask the user to send you the data of the first & last name exactly as they enter it. Make the calc based on the same hash and send this result tothe user.

3. I would argue against not using the Accounts and Privileges. Nothing can beat the use of it on security level.
